Mexico is one of the 31 nations of the State of Mexico, the State of the ânbsp;¢nbsp;¢n;¢n;¢n;¢n;¢n;¢n;¢n;¢n;¢n;¢n;¢n; it is one of the 31 States of the State. The name of the state comes from the word of the nation called Perepec and means "the place of the cattles hills". The national constitution is made up of Metis, Honyas, and Whites. The Confessional population is Catholic.

The first Spanish expedition to Guanajuatu took place in 1522. The discovery of gold and silver in the area of Guanajuatá contributed to the settlement of the region by the Spaniards. After the Spanish arrived, the native tribes were forced to retreat to the harshest hills in the state in an effort to resist the invaders. The Spanish could not force people from that area to work for them, so they had to bring in people from other areas to work in the mines and fields. Colonization efforts in the east of the state began in 1542. The Spanish began to build towns to resist indigenous attacks. But among the cities of the first centuries of the colonial period, the city of Guanajuatu was dominant because of the importance of its own mines.  The eighteenth century saw the rise of the mining industry. Yet despite the regions wealth, a large portion of the population lived in homelessness. In 1809, M. Èdalja and Kostolylya and the group planned a military revolt. They had planned to carry out the  Rebellion in December 1810, but their plans were discovered, and Idaal decided to carry out the Rebellion in September. Idalgos army, having won its first victories, seized San Miguel and Celaya after a little opposition. On September 28, 1810, Èëüãà and his army arrived in the city of Guanajuató. The local population had been sheltered in a fortified barracks, but the army of Idaal broke down the defenses in two days. Only eleven years later the military commanders of Cortástasar and Bustante combined their forces to take the city of Guanajuatá and declare their own state immune to the rule of the Spanish. Just three years later, Guanajuatu was proclaimed officially a Mexican state.

Mexico Guanajuatu has the largest economy in the state. The main industries here are automotive, petroleum, pharmaceuticals, and others. Gold and silver are mined in the state, and there are deposits of inorganic minerals (fluorine, rock salt, quartz). There are also clothing and footwear companies, and food processing plants. The state has had a number of attractions since colonial times. Most of the structures are in Mexican Baroque style. There are several routes throughout the territory: the Route de lInnéncia, the Route de lAvventura, the Route de lArquelógica, the Route de los Quintos and the Route de lArtesanal. The route includes several iconic cities, various kinds of extreme sports (e.g. mountain biking and so on). One of the disproportionate cities is Mineral de Pousses, many of whose houses do not even have a roof. There are many early colonial-era buildings in the city of Quintas de Colombo. Another highlight of the site is the monastery and church called Agustino de San Paballo.
